Chicago decided it wanted to explode this morning [Much to the delight, I'm sure, of anyone trying to fly out of O'Hare]. We went from happy smiles sunshine to "did we remember to renew our building insurance?" in the span of about 5 minutes, which is all the time it took for heavy cloud cover to roll in over St. Michael's Church, pictured above.
Given the foreboding nature of the image, I'd like to think it would make a decent cover for an urban fantasy with apocalyptic/religious undertones. Maybe something that explores a secret society of exorcists and demon hunters within the Catholic Church; 12 men and women who can trace their bloodlines back to the apostles themselves. A plague of darkness has descended upon Chicago, inspiring an unnatural rise in violence and lust. It's up to these holy warriors [Is Saynts too cheesy? I think it is] to bring back the light.
I call it In the Shadows of Faith.
Now I just need someone to write it... DON'T LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT.
